/ -- The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature Singer Songwriter Peter Mayer's "Ocean Mary" as their May Song of the Month. A free download available at the Franciscanized World fscc-calledtobe.org
In the month of May with our hearts full of the love and life of mothers, and discerning new horizons as the semesters conclude, Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity offer "Ocean Mary." Delight in the evocative lyrics and percolating sound of this Minnesota singer-songwriter. St. Francis' Canticle of the Creatures finds a home in this song which sings vividly of the preciousness of all of life.
Peter Mayer writes songs for a small planet -- songs about interconnectedness and the human journey; about the beauty and the mystery of the world. Whimsical, humorous, and profound, his music transcends the boundaries of genre, beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.
Peter began playing the guitar and writing songs when he was in high school. He studied Theology and music in college, and then spent two years in seminary. After deciding that the priesthood wasn't for him, he took a part-time job as a church music director for 8 years, while performing at clubs and colleges, and writing and recording his music. In 1995, he quit his job and started touring full-time. Since then, Peter has gradually gained a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, playing shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has nine CDs to his credit, and has sold over 70 thousand of them.Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic Health Care, Education and Parish-Community Service in the Midwest, Central and Southwest United States.
